It’s been a long time in the making but we finally finished up our interviews this weekend. Rosario and I just got back from a trip out to LA where we were able to sit down with Jaime King, Milla Jovovich, and Chris Brenner.
We’ll have more updates shortly as we keep truckin’ along. Thanks for sticking with us in making this film a reality.
Rosie and I just got back from LA, lots of updates soon!
Sorry for the lack of updates recently. We’ve been hard at work on the doc but I wanted to take a second to let all of you wonderful supporters know where we are with completing the film.
Since the last update we ended up back in New York where we finished up our interviews with the Sorrentis. The interviews with Mario, Vanina, and Francesca were some of the most moving and powerful stories about Dave we’ve been lucky enough to hear and we’re so incredibly thankful to be able to include them in the film. We were also able to sit down with Richard Pandiscio, a close family friend who gave Dave his first editorial job while he served as Creative Director at Interview Magazine during the 90’s.
Since those interviews things have taken longer than we would have hoped…but it’s beginning to seem that delays are simply part of the process when making a film, and it’s something we’re coming to terms with. However with that being said the delays have been well worth the wait as things are wrapping up better than we could have hoped for.
About a month ago I was able to get back in touch with Jaime and after chatting with her about where we are with the project we met up in LA and went over the interviews we’ve assembled. After seeing what we’ve done so far she agreed to be a part of the project and do an interview which we’re really happy about. Also, we’ve been able to confirm interviews with some really important people from Dave’s life that we’ve really been hoping to include in the film. We’ll be going back to Los Angelas in early January for one last round of interviews and while we’re there we’ll be sitting down with Jaime King, Mila Jovovich, Chris Brenner, and Med Arbrous.
With that trip our interviews will be complete and it’ll be back to the dark of the editing room until we have our finished film. We’ll keep you posted when we finish our interviews and let you know how everything turns out. Thanks again for hangin’ in there with us through this process, we’re seeing things really come together and we can’t wait to share Dave’s story with the world once we’re done.
Fresh Paint NYC has a really dope compilation of Dave’s graffiti. Check it out.
